Former Mennonite missionary convicted of secretly filming teenage relatives having sex with other students. Reminds me of the scene from “Witness” after Harrison Ford, disguised as an Amish, had just beat the living shit out of a tormentor who thought the Amish were pacifists.
Townsman: “Never seen anything like it in all my years!”
Mr. Lapp: [Trying to keep Ford’s cover from being blown] “He’s from Ohio, my cousin.”
Townsman: “Well, them Ohio Amish must be… different. Around here, the brethren don’t have any of that kinda fight in ‘em! Good day to you, Mr. Lapp! This ain’t good for the tourist trade, you know! Tell that to your Ohioan friend!”
And the Mennonite brethren gets two months in jail. I better not say anything else. Some of my readers probably know him. If they aren’t related to him. ;)
HARRISONBURG — A former Mennonite missionary who was convicted of secretly filming teenage relatives having sex with international students in Harrisonburg has been sentenced.
Andrew Max Eggman Jr. was sentenced yesterday in Rockingham County Circuit Court to 10 years in prison, with all but two months suspended. The 46-year-old defendant was sentenced under a plea agreement on charges of felony indecent liberties with a child in a supervisory position and felony production of child pornography.
Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Clark Ritchie said today that taking the case to trial would have been difficult because the Eastern Mennonite University students have returned to their homes abroad. The offenses occurred in 2006.
